Episode 29: “Unearthing the Depths of Sexual Pleasure”

Dr. Patti Britton and Galen Fous discuss Unearthing the Depths of Sexual Pleasure

Episode Summary

A conversation with Galen Fous is never boring or superficial! Listen to this scintillating discussion of how Galen approaches aging and sexuality: Whether the dialogue is related to shifting the focus away from Erectile Dysfunction as a problem to reframing it as an opportunity for different ways of sexual relating; or probing the inner depths of the sexual psyche; or finding pathways out of trauma and shame to uplifting discovery of the authentic sexual self. His work drives us to find our own intellectual passion. Fous entices us into learning more, as he shares his unique style of unearthing the dark side of our own sexual stories and shows us how to crack open the gates for ecstatic pleasure. Galen speaks to us from a conference in Eastern Europe where he is breaking new ground with his radical ideas for sexual treatment.
